2021 Innovation Catalyst Info Session & Overview

 Registration is closed for this event
Have the experiences of the last year led you to rethink your business model? Needing to find new ways to create additional revenue? Looking for a process to bring that big idea to reality? Come learn about the Innovation Catalyst as your next opportunity to have support, resources, tools, coaching, and consulting to transform your organization.

The Innovation Catalyst, now in its 7th year of CNM programming, offers a strategic portfolio review and business planning process to create plans for ventures that would add an alternate revenue stream.

If you are ready to get started on a new approach that goes beyond traditional philanthropy and events, this session will get you ready to apply for the next catalyst cohort. Applications are now open and are due July 9.

Session highlights:

  • Hear a panel of leading funders explain why nonprofit innovation is so important to them;
  • Join a group discussion with award-winning local nonprofit innovators and former participants of this catalyst to hear about their experiences, successes and challenges;
  • Learn ways to enhance your application for the 2021 Innovation Catalyst
  • Facilitated by our consulting partners from CauseImpact, an organization dedicated to helping organizations be more innovative and entrepreneurial.

This session is recommended for board members, executive directors, program managers, or development directors. Organizations that are very interested in applying for the Innovation Catalyst (or who already have a new venture in mind) are invited to bring multiple staff members.

Prior to this session, we ask all participants to please complete the Nonprofit Innovation Readiness Assessment.
